. remember that under president obama, like under president bill clinton, part of what has made fema so effective is the ability to have the resources in the bank, to have the resources, to get those resources ahead of the storm. because part of the problem is once the storm hits and you're trying to move resources in then you're behind the 8 ball. part of ryan budget, frankly, if we believe that's the approach romney would take says, no, no, you have to come back to us after a storm hits and get the resources you need. that's inefficient and we know that's inefficient. >> of course, we'll get the conversation of the off sets. >> of course. >> that means we have to take -- >> middle class americans. as you've been pointing out, all of a sudden he's nice to first responders when he wasn't so hot on them when we had real labor issues, was he? >> not at all. karen finney, great to have you on "the ed show." thanks so much. remember to answer tonight's question at the bottom of the screen. share your thoughts on twitter @edshow and on facebook. >>> coming up, a down and dirty ad from the ro
that bill clinton carried in '96 and that president obama carried. >> if that poll is accurate, romney will win florida for sure, if he's going to carry i-4 by that big a margin. most indications are that he's going to win the state. however, you have to point out, the obama campaign says they're competing in all the battleground states, and they are. the president's one event today is in florida with bill clinton, 10:00 this morning. >> going to be right in the middle of the i-4 corridor. >> right in the middle. they're competing there. they're not giving up. they're using their most precious asset today, one obama visit with bill clinton to go to florida. so they're not giving up, but there's no question romney has an edge there right now. >> you usually have, mika, north florida against south florida and central florida being what makes a difference. the south florida poll out of miami-dade shows the president -- >> largest county in the state, 52%-43%. >> that's not a surprise. i will tell you, this next poll, though, is a surprise. >> all right. let's go to virginia. the latest "w
his message. he has a new closing argument. he's dropped the line and instead he's about bill clinton and what bill clinton's role was in doing kind of the right by the economy. and now talking about himself, barack obama, president obama as a leader who unites people. brings people together. and is now going back to the message of change from 2008, saying not talking about changing washington, but bringing americans' voices into washington and talking about himself as a unifier, clearly a mantle he is picking up in the wake of his leadership role in the role he's taken after superstorm sandy. >> it's amazing. the twist and turns this race has taken, i guess every presidential race does in the final days. a new polling out from colorado, still a very tight race there. what does it mean for next tuesday? what do the number show? >> the numbers in colorado show 50-48 for the president. that's a statistical tie. this is a state that is going down right to the very end. you can tell that when you're here. the early voting. this is one of the places republicans have even a slight advantage
for relief efforts for the people that are going to be impacted by the storm and bill clinton raced out there to politicize this by saying electing romney is worse than hurricane sandy. i guess its fitting considering this has been the nastiest campaign run by president civility and company that we've ever seen. >> yeah. incredible. well, i think there will be three impacts from the storm politically, one which will help obama. any time there's an emergency like a blizzard or a flood or a tsunami or something, the president gets to play rescuer in chief, something bush failed to do with hurricane katrina. i'll bat obama dons his rain coat and his galoshes and shows up helping some wisconsin town sand bag against the lakes or something, and i think you'll see a lot of that. i think that that could prove very effective. that's a very good strategy that many, many governors and some presidents, even, have used. if romney is smart, he'll match him sand bag for sand bag and be out there himself doing it, so that it's a break-even situation. the worst would be for romney to criticize obama an
with a real whopper on the automobile industry and former president bill clinton calls him out on it. governor strickland will join us next. stay with us. [ mom ] 3 days into school break and they're already bored. hmm, we need a new game. ♪ that'll save the day. ♪ so will bounty select-a-size. it's the smaller powerful sheet. the only one with trap + lock technology. look! one select-a-size sheet of bounty is 50% more absorbent than a full size sheet of the leading ordinary brand. use less. with the small but powerful picker upper, bounty select-a-size. >>> welcome back to "the ed show." there was some campaign news today. this time the romney campaign put out a lie so big the media almost universally called it out. a romney ad running in ohio say this is. >> obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. >> the ad doubles down on a lie romney said himself on the stump last week. chrysler, which still manufactures jeep, also responded. jeep has no intention of shifting production of its jeep models out of north america to ch
." campaigning for president obama today, former president bill clinton made the political link between hurricane sandy and manmade climate change when he referred to mitt romney's stance on climate change in the recent debate. this is gripping. let's listen. >> he ridiculed the president, ridiculed the president for his efforts to fight global warming in economically beneficial ways. he said, oh, you're going to turn back the seas. in my part of america, we would like it if someone could have done that yesterday. all up and down the east coast there are mayors, many of them republicans, who are being told you got to move these houses back away from the ocean. you got to lift them up. climate change is going to raise the water levels on a permanent basis. if you want your town insured, you have to do this. in the real world, barack obama's policies work better. >> he's unbelievable. anyway, does our extreme weather we're facing right now in the northeast from droughts and wildfires actually across the country, now hurricane sandy, make the case that manmade global warming is not only real but is
clinton out there campaigning for obama, it can be effective but people expect bill clinton to be campaigning for obama. when it's chris christie suddenly the guy who's the keynote speaker at the republican convention speaking up and vouching for him, that's the kind of thing, people who are wavering back and forth, that registers with them to some extent. >> how are you hanging in personally dealing with the storm? >> i have it a lot better than most people. i used to live in hoboken and the scenes from there, i'm just thinking of the people, my neighbors from hoboken from a few years ago and imagining what they're going through. >> an update on the situation in hoboken, we have new york governor andrew cuomo coming up live in a moment. he never does interviews. i'm really happy he's going to be here. steve kornacki is the co-host of msnbc's "the cycle" at 3:00 p.m. herein here on msnbc and he writes for salon.com. all right. new york governor andrew cuomo is going to join us. big deal. stay tuned. or that you had to print from your desk. at least, nobody said it to us. int
in pennsylvania later today, as well. guess what, former president bill clinton coming to pennsylvania to campaign on monday. you turn on the tvs here, randi, all you see are campaign commercials. i saw a ton in the local news. 10 million in the final days and the romney campaign is outspending the obama campaign two to one here in pennsylvania. 20 electoral votes at stake. here is the latest poll in pennsylvania. franklin and marshal, a four-point advantage for the president. very tight. that's within the sampling error. the president used to have a double-digit lead in pennsylvania. now it's getting crowded. randi, the obama campaign says this is a sign of desperation by the romney campaign that they can't win in wisconsin, ohio and that's why they're coming to pennsylvania. romney campaign says just the opposite. they're trying to expand the map and they think they can do it here in pennsylvania. >> if you look at the math and it does work, it can certainly steal a big prize. this is a popular but pretty unsuccessful strategy for republicans, right? they have tried this over and over. >> yeah,
of surrogates and i understand bill clinton will be picking up a number of campaign appearances on the campaign trail. so that is going to help matters. president obama can say, well, i'm president. and, you know, this takes priority over politics. and i think that will basically sit well with voters. >> let's talk about mitt romney. he decided to turn a campaign event in ohio into a relief effort. collecting food and collecting goods to send to the people who have been affected by superstorm sandy. good, bad, what? >> i think it was a very smart political move. again, you don't want to come off too overtly political. i think that was just the right measured response to the disaster. and i think if he went to -- you know, on a media tour of the disaster site that would seem too opportunistic, almost politically desperate. i think he made the right call there. >> the only thing is that reporters at the end of this event were shouting at him, asking him if he supported fema, if fema should disappear. governor romney didn't answer their questions. why do you suppose that was? >> because he knows t
in china. >> to quote bill clinton, that takes brass. but that ad got four pinocchios from washington post, got pats on fire from politico. so obviously he stopped, right? wrong. he's now buying ohio ads in the ohio city home of the jeep plant. >> now come words that chrysler plans to start making jeeps in, you guessed it, china. what happened to the promises made to autoworkers in toledo and throughout ohio? the same hard working men and went who were told obama's auto bailout would help them? >> today chrysler's ceo sent a letter to employees saying, i feel obliged to unambiguously restate our position. jeep productions will not be moved from the united states to chi china. it is inaccurate to suggest anything different. inaccurate is a kind way of putting it. when corrected time and time again, governor romney has walked away from the truth. he hasn't fibbed, he hasn't mud idea the facts. he lied. and it's a lie he is selling to the people of ohio. it's desperate behavior from a desperate candidate. joining me now is former ohio governor ted strickland, national co-chairman for the obam
, because i want to play something bill clinton said yesterday and it's something we haven't heard on the campaign trail from either candidate on a specific topic. let me show you and let you hear what president clinton said. >> in the first debate, the try up much of the moderate mitt romney, you know what he did? he ridiculed the president, ridiculed the president, for his efforts to fight global warming in economically beneficial ways. he said, oh, you're going to turn back the seas. and in my part of america we would like it if someone could have done that yesterday. >> perry, it was interesting, governor cuomo brought it up with brian williams, governor christie had said he's going to, look, we have to get the army corps -- we have to build the jersey shore differently because of the climate. climate change has not been something the president has brought up anymore and there was the other line mitt romney said the rise of the oceans -- does sandy change the conversation? >> i don't think it does very late politically. it should. on some levels the regret for candidates and we
, wisconsin. joe biden and bill clinton are also on the stump for president obama. let's bring in our panel, former rnc chairman michael steele, former democratic senator blanche lincoln, and washington bureau chief susan page. susan, let me start with you. disaster politics. it's a fact of life. it's what can re-elect or unelect governors, but now it's potentially impacting the presidential race. any idea how this is going to impact? >> if you want to look at an opportunity for president, look at "morning joe," governor christie of new jersey, saying the president and fema are doing an outstanding job. i mean, that's the upside, potential political upside for a president. obama is not out there on the campaign trail like any candidate. he's in the situation room, being briefed overnight. >> right. this is an opportunity for him to be the president, to be the commander in chief, to make that case. if there's a problem with fema's response, if there's a glitch that develops, but i think a big potential here for president obama in this very, very close race. >> senator lincoln, it's interesti
tuesday? let's talk to former advisor to president bill clinton, co-author of the book that's coming out, u.n. global governance and the loss of freedom, dick morris who joins us today from detroit. good morning to you. >> i don't know if the black helicopters will get through the storm. >> steve: they were probably grounded for a day or two, but they could be back later today. as we look toward -- >> you guys hear that the u.n. is sending inspectors to monitor our elections in the u.s.? >> steve: yeah. >> we talked about it in the book. >> steve: down in texas, they said don't bother. >> they're not letting them in. >> steve: no. let's talk about the impact of sandy on next tuesday's voting. there are a number of states that could potentially be still impacted by the lingering effects. i was talking to my sister yesterday who lives in ohio. half of her roof got blown away with the storm as it moved through there and ohio is important. >> yeah. i think that today the storm will have some positive impact for obama because he's going to be moving through the state with governor christie, a
